As a result of a breeding and trialing by PanAmerican Seed, a new Marigold variety has been introduced, the Marigold Xochi. "It was selected under strong and rustic conditions ensuring an easy production of the variety and a reliable crop under adverse conditions.”
This big head flower was named after the Nahuatl word “Xochitl” that means flower, explains Marquez. "The name honors its American origin and ancestral tradition. From the land of drums, ceremonies and ancestral rituals, where the force of nature and the magic of color are always present, the unique story of Marigold Xochi is born, a flower charged with energy, which carries the memory of the lands of South America to the rest of the world sharing their magic and wisdom to new cultures."
